For example Duncan glass recently completed a 142” x 54 x 3/4”, 550 lb. Onami Crystal textured starfire glass table top for a yacht berthed in Fort Lauderdale. FL

Below is how we crated and successfully shipped this 142” x 54”, 550 lb. Onami Crystal textured starfire low iron glass table top from Seattle, WA to Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

The completed Onami Crystal textured starfire low iron glass table top

First we built the skid. It needed to be able to withstand any twisting or drooping while being moved by forklift. The rails were boxed for lengthwise rigidity. Then we triangulated the skid to help to reduce twisting and then the top and bottom cross pieces were bolted using 3/8” dia. bolts.

Then the crate was attached by bolts to the skid. It was placed slightly off center and tilted back to help the stability. By positioning the crate off center and titled lowers the center of gravity and since the overall height of the unit was 66” it helps to reduce the possibility of tipping.

The glass is placed in the crate
We use “soft” foam as filler. The “soft” foam is used because it allows the glass to “float. If the crate is impacted enough to potentially distort the glass the “soft” foam will absorb some of the shock allowing the glass to remain stable or in other words “float” within the crate.

The front was installed and the bracing was added.
The front is installed with screws and all the screws are marked making it easy to remove the front to inspect the glass.
The completed the unit was delivered to the freight company, YRC, for shipping to Fort Lauderdale, FL.

The crated glass having arrived at in Fort Lauderdale, FL is being boomed aboard the motor yacht.

Having been removed from the crate the glass will need to be transitioned from vertical to horizontal so it can be installed on the table.
